LYDIA LUNCH: THE WAR IS NEVER OVER is the first career-spanning documentary retrospective of Lydia Lunch’s confrontational, acerbic and always electric artistry. As New York City’s preeminent No Wave icon from the late 70’s, Lunch has forged a lifetime of music and spoken word performance devoted to the utter right of any woman to indulge, seek pleasure, and to raise voice in a rage as loud as any man. The film is not only about Lunch, but about the scene that she helped spawn, continues to grow and influence, and the creative people who join her in creating a new vision of woman.

Official Selection: SXSW, DOC NYC, Rotterdam, Sheffield Doc Fest

“This in-your-face documentary shows how she’s been able to survive on her wits and attitude, while being an underrated influence on her peers and subsequent generations of punk-influenced music artists.” – Carla Hay, Culture Mix

“A truly extraordinary artist.” – Anthony Bourdain
